Don’t just stand there… Go explore.
Shinjuku at night. This neighborhood is vibrant and alive at all times of the day.
In Shinjuku, there are very tiny alleyways with bars only 5-10 people can fit in. La Jetée is run by a tiny woman named Tomoyo who opened the bar 34 years ago. She serves you baby squids and good stories with your drink. (I couldn’t muster up the courage to eat a whole baby squid)
We went to a cat cafe! It’s a cafe that has 25+ cats running around for you to pet and feed while you sip your coffee.
Sunset alleyways of Tokyo
KFC, Japanese style.
A lot of tiny restaurants in Tokyo have these vending machines. Instead of a waitress taking your order, you order what you want from the vending machine and it prints your order on a ticket. The restaurants are often so tiny that you sit at the bar facing the chefs. You hand him your ticket and they make your order. It’s a brilliant idea because as soon as you are done eating, you can leave and give your spot to the next person in line.
Welcome to the crazy mad world of Shibuya, Tokyo.
This is Shibuya Crossing, the most famous crosswalk in the world.
It’ll be okay, lil guy. #schedcation
The streets are lined with the cutest restaurants you’ll ever see. Most can only hold 10-15 people. #schedcation #twentysixlookslike
Tokyo Casino. One of the loudest and craziest things I’ve seen yet. All the games were a combination of video games, pinball and slots… I still didn’t figure out how to play!
Kudanshita Station, Tokyo Metro. Our first day in Tokyo, we explored the subways. Everything was exceptionally clean and they even had fans running in the subway cars, something I’ve never seen before. Kudanshita is our closest subway stop.
I woke up on my first morning in Tokyo to the sound of children laughing. I looked outside my hotel window to see at least 100 children playing soccer.
